IF you read the actual story you would know that this only applies to people with a subscription. You pay $x per month to read all you want.

Now, if you post 500 pages if drivel with a catchy title you get paid for every download.

With the new rules, people download your book and read a couple pages before deleting it, you only get paid for the pages read.

- Customers are not effected, they pay the same. But might see fewer garbage books.

- People posting crap will see their income drop to near zero.

- People writing good books will only see a small drop due to some people just sampling their book.
